Welcome to Arbutus Elementary School


Our mission is to provide a positive and effective educational environment that is student centered and focuses on individual achievement to prepare our students for college and career opportunities in a multicultural, technologically advanced, global society.


Our vision is the cultivation of a community of individuals who are life long learners who contribute to the global society in a positive manner while inspiring others to reach their potential.

As a professional learning community:

  • We will make decisions based on student data as well as moral and ethical values.

  • We will view all students as individuals when evaluating and nurturing their potential.

  • We will communicate clear expectations that are measurable and maintain accountability to ensure that we are implementing effective instruction.

  • We will recognize the strengths and needs of the community to maximize the advancement of all stakeholders.

We are Bucket Fillers

Everyone carries an invisible bucket that holds our good thoughts and feelings. When our buckets are full, we feel happy and when our buckets are empty, we feel sad.

During this school year we are encouraging, reminding, and recognizing everyone’s efforts to be bucket fillers at home, at school, and everywhere they go.
